Pastor Kellar McFarlane

Montserrat Christian Council (MCC) Chairman has described the recent decision by the United States Supreme Court to legalise same sex marriages as a violation of the word of God.  Pastor Kellar McFarlane says the judgement by the highest Federal Court of the United States is worrying, given the country’s historical influential trends.

The US Supreme Court ruled in favour of gay marriage on June 26, 2015 making it legal in all 50 states.  But Pastor McFarlane says the decision was not based on scripture but on the US constitution, according to a ZJB broadcast.

Pastor:The MCC Chairman/President said: “The rule of God cannot change.  Marriage is still monogamous between a male and a female.  That is what the Bible says. It is my view and that is what I believe.  And anything outside of that is not accepted by the church and it is not accepted in the eyes of God.”

Pastor McFarlane is the head of the Wesleyan church here proffers there are implications for people who condone the act and who engage in the practice: “We need to understand also that those who condone the acts, their eyes have been blinded and they can get help and they can get deliverance from the whole homosexuality (discourse), because all hope is not lost,” she said.

“People also need to understand that you cannot expect one that is unsaved to act like one that is saved.  So when your eyes have been blinded to the truth, anything is accepted in your eyes, including homosexuality,” she recorded, addressing matters of truth, so easily misunderstood and misplaced.

Speaking directly to the churches of the Council, which she heads, she adds: “My advice to the churches in Montserrat is that what we can do; we teach our people what the word of God says.  This is what the word of God says.  This has nothing to do with constitution because constitution change, the law change but the word of God, it never ever changes and we need to practice what we believe.

She then addresses the matter as it pertains to herself and Montserrat. “And if it means that as pastors—because at the end of the day, you know, it’s going to boil down to personally what I believe in as a pastor.  If a law is passed that I must perform same sex marriage, what am I going to do as a pastor?  Am I going to do it?  Or is there some sort of consequence for not doing it?  Would I rather take the consequence?” she said, concluding putting forward her own position. “I want to tell people to stand their guard and do not be afraid.  And once we stand on the words of God, we can never go wrong because I know for me, personally, if it does come down to that, that there’s a choice between whether or not you have to do it, I know personally that I won’t do it.”
